Century™ Expanded

By Adobe

In 1894, Linn Boyd Benton finished a commission for a new text typeface with the American periodical Century Magazine.
Century is typical of the neo-renaissance movement in typography at the end of the 19th century. Morris Fuller Benton drew a number of versions and extensions of Century for the American Typefounders Company, and Century was later taken up by the firms Linotype, Intertype and Monotype. Century is an extremely legible design suitable for almost any text. In 1993 Ed Benguiat added the Handtooled weights to this family.
